Journal History

Public Journal of Semiotics (PJOS) was established in 2007 by Prof. Paul Bouissac, at Victoria University / University of Toronto, Canada, as "a nonprofit organization, ... available online free of charge. Its aim is to publish original research articles in domains relating to semiotics". Four volumes and 8 issues were published until 2012. The original site of the journal was created by Pyrocomp Systems.

From 2013 and Vol. 5 Prof. Jordan Zlatev, at Lund University Sweden, assumed the role of editor-in-chief, with the intention to follow the original aims of the project, interpreting "semiotics" broadly as the systematic study of meaning, in perception, cognition, communication, language and any kind of media. The move to the present site is just a minor step in the direction of technical improvement.
